According to engadget (citing TouchPal as well as an internal source), HTC aims to replace Swype with TouchPal as the default input method in upcoming devices, including the new HTC One M9. The official TouchPal Twitter account also tweeted the engadget article about this, further confirming the move. What prompted this move? The CEO of CooTek, the company behind TouchPal, says it's because of their better contextual prediction and language support. If you actually look at the supported languages, you'll...
ICS Ported to the LG Optimus 3D P920
The ICS rush is, for the most part, over with thanks to Jelly Bean coming to our devices like flies on sugar. Manufacturers have kept, after tremendously long delays, their promise to update devices to the frozen treat. However, due to the long time they have taken in doing this, many have fled what people consider “sinking ships” of devices that are seemingly forgotten by their manufacturer. The LG Optimus 3D (P920) is one such device that, to this date, has yet to see an official ICS firmware update. Any and all attempts to port ICS to the device have been through the magic of AOSP-derived projects. However, just like with HTC’s EVO 3D, the use of the 3D feature is limited, if existent at all.
Not all is lost, however. As it turns out, there is a Korean version of the P920, also known as the SU760. Sometime not too long ago, this device did see an ICS ROM surface. A few devs got their hands on this new ROM, but due to obvious hardware and software differences, it could not be directly flashed on the device—until now. XDA Forum Member xbsall has successfully ported the ICS- and 3D-loaded goodness for those people who decided to stay loyal to the LG 3D device. The new ROM has its set of quirks (mainly because it is a port), but for the most part, these are somewhat minor and have workarounds (if needed).
The dev warns that the flashing of this ROM, which is unrooted and full of LG’s bloat, will wipe out all the partitions of your device, including your Internal SD card. So, it would be wise to create a backup in case you have not done it yet. Lastly, the dev has posted several guides in the opening post of the thread for all your flashing and rooting needs, so please refer to those if you require any help with it.
I guess you have read the news in the [ALL ICS / JELLYBEAN] Related Topics / Requests / Questions [xbsall has ported ICS]
This is what you have all been waiting for the last 1? 2? 3? 4? 5? 6? months… (or more)
This is the FIRST ICS FULL 3D ROM for the P920.
This is a direct port from SU760 (KOREAN O3D) modified to work on the P920.
This one is NOT rooted NOT cleaned from bloatware its 100% STOCK V30B.

Many people are under the impression that once Apple finally launches its smartwatch, the market for wearables will suddenly become mainstream and be taken to the next level. Taking an idea that already exists and making it incredibly successful isn't something new to Apple, but does the Apple Watch have what it takes? The wearable hasn't even shipped yet, but has already won multiple awards and has been featured on numerous fashion magazine covers. Do you think the Apple Watch will be a huge success? Let us know your thoughts.
The smartphone landscape is drastically changing its focus. What was once a North-America-centric monopoly of high-specification phones is now merely an afterimage of the past. The meat of the game is elsewhere now; emerging markets looking for good bang-for-buck are what OEMs are increasingly aiming towards, and in this new game the old players must adapt-or-die. Xiaomi has grown at one of the most notable rates in the industry, leading it to become the world's most valuable start-up; and its...
